And why it affects us all
Hundreds of millions of children are pushed onto the margins of society around the world. This number is increasing. ChildSafe works to protect children and youth who are: living and working on the streets, using drugs, affected by HIV, migrants or at risk of unsafe migration, in prison or in conflict with the law, victims of abuse and domestic violence, involved in the sex trade, school drop-outs or unemployed, living in poverty or affected in any other way that prevents them from having their internationally recognized rights as children fulfilled. Children and youth living on the margins of society are exposed to many abuses, from physical and emotional violence to sexual exploitation, forced labor or lack of access to health care and education.
HOW IT WORKS
To make children safer
Awareness, Behavior Change & Advocacy
Awareness raising, behavior change and advocacy is critical to protect children. By adopting positive behaviors and policies, we provide supportive environments to children and youth. We created campaigns for citizens, travelers and donors.
Child Protection Trainings
We provide trainings to various types of people and organizations. From community members to businesses, non-profits and schools. These entities are given the tools to protect children and youth in their daily life. They are certified and continuously monitored.
24/7 Emergency Hotlines & Support
ChildSafe offers immediate protection to children at risk of being harmed. We have hotlines operating 24/7 ready to respond to a call about a child in danger. Our ChildSafe social workers take the necessary action to rescue and protect the child.
